Arguments scheduled for Spanier, Schultz, Curley
A hearing has been scheduled for three former Penn State executives.
Former president Graham Spanier, former vice president Gary Schultz and former athletic director Tim Curley will have a chance to present their cases as the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments in their appeal for Aug. 11.
The three men are appealing the decision of Dauphin County Judge Todd Hoover, who rejected their arguments against allowing testimony of former Penn State trustee and general counsel Cynthia Baldwin who they say represented them during issues surrounding the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
In January, Hoover said their rights to counsel were not violated and that Baldwin “consistently and properly identified her role as counsel to the university,” while they chose to move ahead.
He also found “meritless” the argument that the defendants were then left unrepresented.
Spanier, Curley and Schultz are facing perjury and conspiracy charges in Dauphin County.
